No. 2 Alabama 49, Auburn 0

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- With junior quarterback AJ McCarron throwing four touchdown passes and junior running back Eddie Lacy rushing for 131 yards and two touchdowns, Alabama reached the end zone on its first seven possessions and destroyed archenemy Auburn on Saturday.

Alabama (11-1, 7-1) will meet Georgia next week for the SEC title and a trip to the BCS Championship Game on the line.

The only setback for Alabama was the loss of junior receiver Kenny Bell, who sustained a painful left knee/leg injury in the second quarter and did not return. Freshman wide receiver Amari Cooper had 109 yards on five catches with touchdowns of 37 and 29 yards, and junior Kevin Norwood had touchdown receptions of 38 and 7 yards.

Just two years after winning the national championship, Auburn (3-9) finished winless in SEC play for the first time since going 0-6 in Doug Barfield's final season in 1980. It had never gone 0-8 before.

No. 3 Georgia 42, Georgia Tech 10

ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray completed 14 of 17 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns and topped 3,000 yards for the third straight year to lead Alabama past Georgia Tech.

The Bulldogs (11-1) moves on to the SEC championship game next week against Alabama with a shot at playing for the BCS national championship. Georgia Tech (6-6) will face Florida State next Saturday in the ACC championship game.

Running backs Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall made their presence felt for Georgia. Gurley rushed 12 times for 97 yards and two touchdowns, giving him 14 for the season and moving to within one of Herschel Walker's Georgia record of 15 for a freshman set in 1980. Marshall picked up 66 yards on seven carries and added touchdown runs of 15 and 17 yards.

David Sims rushed 14 times for 71 yards and scored Georgia Tech's only touchdown on a 4-yard run in the fourth quarter.

No. 4 Florida 37, No. 10 Florida State 26

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida scored 24 consecutive points in the fourth quarter and ended a two-game losing streak against Florida State.

Florida State (10-2) led 20-13 with under 13 minutes left when Antonio Morrison laid a thundering hit on Seminoles quarterback EJ Manuel, forcing a fumble that Dominique Easley recovered for the Gators. On the next play, Mike Gillislee ran 37 yards for touchdown to tie the score.

Jeff Driskel hit Andre Dubose with a 14-yard touchdown pass to break the tie with seven minutes left.

Florida (11-1) amassed 243 yards on the ground, led by Gillislee's 140 yards and two touchdowns.

Florida State turned the ball over five times, four by Manuel, who also threw three interceptions.

No. 5 Oregon 48, No. 15 Oregon State 24

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Oregon concluded the Pac-12 regular season by blowing out rival Oregon State in the second half of the 116th Civil War Game on Saturday.

Midway through the third quarter, it was a close game, with Oregon (11-1, 8-1 Pac-12) holding a 20-17 lead after the Beavers' Storm Woods second rushing touchdown.

The Ducks rebounded from its first loss of the season last week against Stanford and piled up 430 rushing yards.

Oregon running back Kenjon Barner left the game in the second quarter with an apparent rib or abdominal injury but came back in the third quarter and scored his second touchdown of the game. He had 198 rushing yards on 28 carries.

Marcus Mariota was sensational in his first Civil War appearance, completing 17 of 24 passes for 140 yards and also running for 85 yards on eight carries.

Oregon State (8-3, 6-3) lost three of its last five games after rising as high as No. 7 in the AP poll.

No. 13 Oklahoma 51, Oklahoma State 48 (OT)

NORMAN, Okla. -- Brennan Clay delivered the deciding blow, an 18-yard, tackle-breaking run in overtime to send Oklahoma past Oklahoma State in a back-and-forth Big 12 game.

It was the Sooners' first lead.

In a series known as Bedlam, there was delirium aplenty, most coming from offensive firepower that produced 1,108 yards and 99 points.

The Sooners (9-2, 7-1 Big 12) forced overtime when quarterback Landry Jones led them on the drive of the game: a 17-play, 86-yard march, finished only when Blake Bell banged it in from the 4 on a fourth-down run with four seconds remaining in regulation.

Jones passed for 500 yards, after going 46 of 71 with three touchdowns and an interception.

Joseph Randle rushed for 113 yards and four touchdowns for Oklahoma State (7-4, 5-3).

Ohio State 26, No. 19 Michigan 21

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State outlasted Michigan in a battle between traditional rivals to complete an unbeaten season in Urban Meyer's first year as coach.

The Buckeyes (12-0, 8-0 Big Ten) needed an interception from C.J. Barnett with just under five minutes left and then a couple of first downs from its offense to finally put the Wolverines away.

Michigan (8-4, 6-2) had used two big plays to take a 21-20 lead at the half, but the Ohio State defense never allowed the Wolverines past midfield in the second half.

Connecticut 23, No. 20 Louisville 23 (3 OT)

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Behind a defense that physically whipped the Louisville offensive line and knocked quarterback Teddy Bridgewater out of the game twice, Connecticut upset Louisville when Chad Christen kicked a 30-yard field goal in the third overtime.

Connecticut (5-6, 2-4 Big East) sacked Bridgewater and backup Will Stein five times, helping hold Louisville to 19 yards rushing. The Cardinals (9-2, 4-2) entered the game averaging 33.3 points per game but punted nine times and didn't score until John Wallace kicked a 19-yard field goal with 11:40 left in regulation.

Bridgewater injured his left wrist when Sio Moore dumped him with a horsecollar tackle as time expired in the first half. After staying in the locker room for treatment, Bridgewater returned to the field in the third quarter. He completed 30 of 53 passes for 331 yards but made his one huge mistake when Blidi Wreh-Wilson intercepted a pass intended for Parker on third down from the 5-yard line in the third overtime.
